Understanding Big Data

In this book, the three defining characteristics of Big Data — volume, variety, and velocity, are discussed. You’ll get a primer on Hadoop and how IBM is ‘hardening’ it for the enterprise, and learn when to leverage IBM InfoSphere BigInsights (Big Data at rest) and IBM InfoSphere Streams (Big Data in motion) technologies. Deployment and scaling strategies plus industry use cases are also included in this practical guide. Review this book and get started with big data!”
